“A must see attraction-very unique”

Sapphire Sweet Shop & Gem Mine Village
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: The Sapphire Sweet Shop and Gem Mine takes visitors back to the olden days. Our mine is set under a canopy of trees and alongside a running stream. We are not plopped in a parking lot along the side of a busy road. We cater to families and assure that each and every person who walks onto our property has a great time at a reasonable price. The sweet shop is an old timey candy shop which looks the part and carries a line of hand-dipped chocolates, ice cream and retro candies. Out back you will find picnic areas, a log amphitheater and 4 primitive campsites.

Reviewed August 8, 2013

The Sapphire Sweet Shop and Gem Mine Village is a must see attraction and worth the trip. Make sure you bring the kids or the grandkids too, they'll have a blast. The grounds are beautiful, and the candy shop is incredible, it's like a step back in time. And I have to say the candy is VERY VERY GOOD.

“THE Sapphire area location to gem mine at!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

My brother and I stopped here one afternoon looking for gifts to take home. They have a great variety of buckets to pick from, clean and extensive sluice seating, and fantastic homemade fudge and chocolate caramel! Also, ask to try his specially mixed and roasted coffee! We got a mid sized bucket, and found a gallon baddie worth of quartz, Topaz, emerald, Sapphire, Ruby, etc. They were knowledgeable about which stones were which gem type, and Happily honest! Will definitely revisit next time we are in the area!!!
